Vinod Kalathil9,118My Morning Circle - January 2015 EditionAs many of you know I started this circle of photographers whom I reshared in the last 12 months. I have learned so much from these photographers and it has helped me come a long way. Here are some of my favorites from January 2015.A colorful lighthouse by +Beena R https://plus.google.com/+BeenaR/posts/7VizSfHV8A7A dreamy monochrome landscape by +Richard Susanto https://plus.google.com/+RichardSusantoPhotography/posts/9fvT1TMX9MLUnique reflections by +Werner Polwein https://plus.google.com/+WernerPolwein/posts/cXfZPQu9Rt6If you get a notification, you are in this circle. To stay in the circle, you don’t need to do anything other than keep posting beautiful shots! However, any plusses and reshares will be most appreciated to spread the word. If you add the people in this circle, you can be rest assured that you will discover some great talent. If you do not want to be a part of this circle, please send me a personal message and I will remove you from this and future circles.2015-02-01 18:27:4530511112

Gailen Mapes75,595Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 22 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-22 11:43:27150002

Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-22 12:04:03153203

+Howard Brown invited me to do the #5dayhdrchallenge  to #promotenaturalhdr  .  This is Round 3 Day 1.  I often use HDR's when shooting architectural interiors.  This is the sanctuary of the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian. It is the largest cathedral in Italy . (St. Peter's is a basilica not a cathedral and is in the Vatican City, not Italy.) This building was clearly meant to impress anyone who visits and its very high ceiling feels like it is reaching up to heaven. I was only able to take a few shots before the tripod police forced me to put my tripod away, but I like this vertical composition which emphasizes the height of the ceiling. I also like the leading lines of the floor tiles that draw your eye to the altar in the distance. It is truly a magnificent building!

On my recent trip to Italy, I spent one night in Florence and I got up early to shoot the cathedral at dawn. The area around this beautiful old building is quite congested so I decided to shoot it from one corner. I like the deep blue color of the sky in this shot.

On my recent trip to Italy, I visited Sorrento after Rome. This is the Tasso Square in the middle of town at dawn. I was a bit disappointed that the main square was paved over and very busy with traffic during the day, but it looked much more peaceful in the early morning.

Day 5 of the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr   by the invitation of +Howard Brown .  I nominate +Deborah Sandidge  to join the fun and post for this challenge.  Any HDR images either recent or from your archives would be OK.  Whenever I enter an impressive building, I always look up to see what the ceiling looks like. If I like what I see, I often take some shots looking directly up. This unusual perspective can make some interesting compositions. This image is looking up at the glass dome in the center of Galleria Vitorrio Emanuele II in central Milan. I like the symmetry of this composition with concentric circles in the middle. It is such a beautiful building, but I suspect very few people see it from this perspective.

Day 4 of Round 3 for the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr   by an invitation from +Howard Brown .  Normally I use a tripod when I shoot HDR's, but sometimes that is not possible.  For this shot I tried doing a hand held HDR and it turned out better than I expected.  I will have to use this technique more in the future.  On our last night in Milan we saw Romeo and Juliet at La Scala. It was a wonderful performance and the costumes were amazing. They do not allow patrons to take photos of the performance itself but I was able to take some photos before the performance started. La Scala is one of Europe's premier opera houses and is such a beautiful building.

Day 3 of the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr  by the invitation of +Howard Brown .  I like to use HDR in the early morning when there is a combination of artificial and natural light. This is Galleria Vitorrio Emanuel II in central Milan. The Galleria, one of the oldest enclosed shopping malls in the world, was completed in 1887 and connects Piazza del Duomo with Piazza della Scala. This beautiful art nouveau building became the prototype for many 19th century shopping arcades across Europe and throughout the world. The Galleria's nickname is "il salotto di Milano" which means Milan's drawing room because for many generations this has been the place to be and be seen. I like this early morning image without any people and with the beautiful dawn sky visible through the glass dome.

+Howard Brown  invited me to the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr  .  This is Round 3 Day 2.  I sometimes use HDR in the middle of the day when the light is very harsh because HDR tends to make the shadows less dark and the highlights less bright. This is the garden of the hotel we stayed at in Chianti. Both the building and the grounds surrounding it were just beautiful. I like this view of the garden with a vineyard in the background. Japanese gardens often use this technique of incorporating far away elements into the design of gardens and it was interesting to see this same idea employed in Italy. In Japan this technique is called "shakkei" which means borrowed landscape. In other words the far away landscape is borrowed as an element included in the garden design.

I was truly impressed with the religious mosaics in Ravenna. This is the ceiling mosaic at the Neonian Baptistery and was originally part of the great basilica. It was built in the late 5th century and is the oldest religious monument in Ravenna. It is amazing that this structure has survived such a long time in such wonderful condition.

While we were in Milan we took a day trip up to Lake Como. Lake Como is north of Milan near the border with Switzerland and has several picturesque towns that are well worth a visit. There are many ferries which connect the different towns on the lake. This is a view of Menaggio which I shot from the ferry as we were arriving from Bellagio. On our next trip to Italy I would like to spend more time on beautiful Lake Como.

While we were in Milan we took a day trip up to Lake Como. Lake Como is north of Milan near the border with Switzerland and has several picturesque towns that are well worth a visit. There are many ferries which connect the different towns on the lake. This is a view of Menaggio which I shot from the ferry as we were arriving from Bellagio. On our next trip to Italy I would like to spend more time on beautiful Lake Como.

When we visited Italy in October last year our last stop was Milan. This is the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian which is located on Piaazza del Duomo and is Milan's most famous landmark. Construction on the cathedral was started in the 14th century, but it was not completed until more than 500 years later in the 19th century. The Milanese set out to build an imposing structure at the heart of their city and it is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. Milan's Duomo is the largest cathedral in Italy and the 5th largest in the world. (St. Peter's in Rome is larger, but it is a basilica, not a cathedral.) I took this image before dawn so I could capture the square without any people. In this image, I like the designs in the piazza which draw your eye to the cathedral and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

On our recent trip to Italy we visited Ravenna which is on the Adriatic Sea south of Venice. Ravenna was the capital of Italy in the 5th and 6th centuries when Italy was a province of the Eastern Roman Empire. This is the Basilica of San Vitale which was completed in 547AD when Justinian was the Eastern Roman Emperor. What may appear to be frescoes on the ceiling and walls in this image are actually Byzantine mosaics. Mosaics were popular in the Eastern Christian churches and can be seen in all of the major Byzantine monuments in Ravenna. It is amazing that Ravenna's Byzantine churches have survived more than 1500 years in such wonderful condition.

On my recent trip to Italy we enjoyed driving around the countryside in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Of course Chianti is best known for its wine and while we were touring the region I was on the lookout for photogenic vineyards. After editing my photos this was my favorite Chianti vineyard which I was able to find with some good directions from Terry Eggers. I just love the way the lines of the vineyard intersect with a classic Tuscan villa on the top of the hill. No wonder people say that Tuscany is the cultural heart of Italy.

This is Hofburg Palace, the ancestral home of the Hapsburg dynasty. European royalty used architecture to impress people and this has to be one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. The original palace was first built in the 13th century and it was expanded many times after that. I got up early so I could shoot it in the early morning light. I like the illumination of the street lights on the palace in this image and the wispy clouds in the sky.

Hawaii is a great place to watch the sunset and what could be better than seeing the sun drop down to the horizon behind some palm trees. I found this row of palm trees at the Place of Refuge on the Big Island. Since they were on the west coast of the island I decided to go back at sunset to take some photos. In this image, I like the silhouette of the palm trees in the foreground and the sun positioned in the middle of the gap in clouds.

Outside it is another dreary Pacific Northwest day so here is a photo that should cheer you up and remind you that there is nice weather somewhere if you are willing to travel. I took this photo on our trip to Hawaii last year. I walked out on a jetty so I could get this view of Waikiki and Diamond Head with only the ocean in the foreground. Honolulu is so beautiful. No wonder it is so popular with tourists in the wintertime.

Whenever I travel to a new place, I seek out interesting architecture and take some photos.  This is the National and University Library of Slovenia designed by Joze Plecnik, Slovenia's most famous architect.  Plecnik's relationship to Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city, is similar to Antonio Gaudi's relationship to Barcelona. Plecnik's architecture literally changed the face of Ljubljana in the early 19th century. A prominent member of the secessionist movement, Plecnik's art nouveau architecture has made modern Ljubljana the graceful city it is today. Isn't this a wonderful space to do some serious research and reading?

One of the days we were in Dubrovnik we drove our rental car up the mountain to get a view looking down on the city. We stopped at many different places and this was my favorite daytime image. I like this view because you can see the entire old town enclosed by the city walls as well as the harbor and the surrounding Adriatic Sea. I just love the contrast of the red tile rooftops against the deep blue color of the Mediterranean. No wonder Dubrovnik's nickname is the "Pearl of the Adriatic".

We couldn't go to Chianti without visiting a winery. This is a view of Castello di Brolio vineyard looking down from the castle on top of the hill. This winery was one of the first to promote Chianti Classico. We did some wine tasting at their shop and it was very fine in deed. I like this view looking down on the vineyard and its buildings. To me, this is such a quintessential view of the Tuscan countryside.

On our trip to Italy last year we stayed in the Chianti region of Tuscany after Cinque Terre. This image is the old medieval town of Radda in Chianti. Chianti is most famous for its wine and the vineyards there are fabulous, but the old towns are also very nice. This area was the border between Florence and Siena when they were the big regional powers. Radda was part of the Florentine Republic and the front line for skirmishes between these two rivals. After Siena was defeated by Florence, Radda lost its strategic importance and became a backwater which allowed its medieval character to survive to the present.

On our trip to Italy last year we stayed in the Chianti region of Tuscany after Cinque Terre. This image is the old medieval town of Radda in Chianti. Chianti is most famous for its wine and the vineyards there are fabulous, but the old towns are also very nice. This area was the border between Florence and Siena when they were the big regional powers. Radda was part of the Florentine Republic and the front line for skirmishes between these two rivals. After Siena was defeated by Florence, Radda lost its strategic importance and became a backwater which allowed its medieval character to survive to the present.

I am a big fan of spiral staircases. This is one I found at a small hotel in Tuscany, Italy. At the bottom of the staircase you can see a table and an oriental rug which is the entrance to the hotel's spa. I like the spiraling line leading your eye to the bottom in this image.

When we had some unusually clear weather in November I made a brief trip down to Portland, OR to shoot some cityscapes. While I have visited Portland before I had not shot the skyline from the opposite side of the Willamette River. I found a great location near OMSI where I made this image. Luckily it was a calm evening and the reflections of the city lights in the river were fantastic. It was such a beautiful sight to see so many different colors reflected on the water's surface!

This is another shot of Vernazza. I got up early and walked out to a vantage point I had found the previous day to shoot the town at dawn. I like the illuminated buildings against this colorful dawn sky. Cinque Terre is so photogenic. Now I understand why it is so popular with photographers.

Over the past several years I have visited Italy many times, but I had not been to Cinque Terre so this year I decided to go there. Cinque Terre has many hiking trails which provide fantastic views of the towns. This is a view of Vernazza we found while we were hiking on one of these trails. I am always on the lookout for good view points looking down on famous spots so from that point of view Cinque Terre is a great place to photograph.

In October, I visited Italy and my first stop was Rome. I was staying at a small hotel near St. Peter's Basilica so it was just a short walk to the Tiber River. This is Ponte Vittorio Emanuele and the dome in the background is St. Peter's. I like the deep blue twilight sky and the reflections in this image. Rome is such a beautiful city!

In late May and early June, I toured Croatia after my trip to Slovenia. We ended our trip in Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, which did not fail to live up to its nickname. Dubrovnik is built on a peninsula that juts out into the Adriatic Sea. I wanted to make an image showing the city surrounded by the sea so I found a spot on a nearby hill with a great view and waited for the sun to go down. This is my favorite composition taken that evening. It was such a beautiful sight to see the city lights come on with the sunset sky in the background.

In May I visited Slovenia for the first time. I highly recommend this destination for anyone who enjoys traveling in Europe. The second stop on my trip to Slovenia was Lake Bled. This beautiful alpine lake has a small island with a medieval church. It is such a picturesque spot and almost looks like a fairytale. I got up early to catch the dawn light and was lucky to have these beautiful clouds reflected in the still waters of the lake. What a wonderful way to start the day!

In April I flew into LA to attend a friend's wedding and afterwards I
drove up the coast to Big Sur. It was such a beautiful trip driving near the ocean. Just south of Big Sur I found these poppies blooming near the side of the road. It was such a beautiful sight with the orange poppies in the foreground and the deep blue ocean in the background. Springtime on California's central coast was wonderful!

In March we visited Mexico and my favorite place was Guanajuato. Whenever I am traveling I try to seek out unique architecture and make some images. This is Teatro Juarez, Guanajuato's elegant old opera house. The opulent interior reflects the wealth which came from the nearby silver mines which at one time produced more the 70 percent of the world's silver. Such a beautiful building!

At the end of the year I like to look back over all the photos I created
and choose my favorites. From now until New Years Day I will publish what I consider my most memorable images from 2014. These images will be published in chronological order so the order in which they are published is not any indication of my preference for any particular image. The first trip I took in 2014 was to Hawaii and this was my favorite shot. It was such a beautiful sight to see the sun rising between these 2 islets on Lanikai Beach on Oahu.

This is Manarola one of the 5 Cinque Terre towns. I got up early so I could shoot it before the tourists come. This is the main road which runs down the center of the town so during the day it is very crowded. I like the fishing boats lined up along the street and the pastel colors of this image. Italy is so picturesque!

This is Monterosso al Mare one of the 5 Cinque Terre towns. I got up early so I could shoot the old town at dawn. In Europe most of the historical sights are illuminated which looks so nice against a deep blue dawn sky. And of course there are very few people walking around at this early hour. I also like the starbursts in this image which result from using a small aperture.

This is Monterosso al Mare one of the 5 Cinque Terre towns. I got up early so I could shoot the old town at dawn. In Europe most of the historical sights are illuminated which looks so nice against a deep blue dawn sky. And of course there are very few people walking around at this early hour. I also like the starbursts in this image which result from using a small aperture.

Cinque Terre has many hiking trails which provide fantastic views of the towns. This is a view of Vernazza we found while we were hiking on one
of these trails. I am always on the lookout for good view points looking down on famous spots so from the at point of view Cinque Terre is a great place to photograph.

On our recent trip to Italy, after Florence we went up to Cinque Terre. This is Manarola perhaps my favorite of the 5 Cinque Terre towns. All of these towns are built on very steep slopes which makes for some truly picturesque views. The weather was not so great while we were there, but I managed to capture some blue sky in this shot.

On my recent trip to Italy, I spent one night in Florence and I got up early to shoot the cathedral at dawn. The area around this beautiful old building is quite congested so I decided to shoot it from one corner. I like the deep blue color of the sky in this shot.

The Amalfi Coast with steep cliffs jutting down to the Mediterranean is not an easy place to build a town. Positano has a shortage of level ground so the town was built on the slopes of the valley which makes for a beautiful view. I found this vantage point as I started my descent into the town. With the sea on one side and the mountains on the other it was very dramatic.

Ponte Sant'Angelo connects central Rome with the Vatican City and is also called St. Peter's Bridge because many pilgrims used this bridge on their way to St. Peter's Basilica. Both sides of the bridge are lined with statues of angels which are most impressive. I got up early so I could shoot it without any people and catch the beautiful dawn sky. I like the leading lines of the road in this image which tend to draw your eye towards the city. I think symmetrical compositions work well for architectural shots.

On my recent trip to Italy, I visited the Amalfi coast for the first time
and I was very impressed. This is a view looking down on Positano
Beach. The orange and yellow umbrellas and lounge chairs look so
beautiful lined up in front of the turquoise water. In the future I
want to return to Positano and explore the area more thoroughly.

On my recent trip to Italy after leaving Rome I visited Sorrento just south of Naples . This photo is Marina Grande, the fishing harbor of Sorrento which faces the Bay of Naples. The buildings on stilts are restaurants which serve some of the best seafood I have had anywhere in the world. It was a beautiful sight to see the harbor lights come on with a deep blue twilight sky in the background.

On my last day in Rome I got up early and went to Piazza Navona before sunrise. I like to shoot illuminated buildings during the blue hour and this was my favorite shot that morning. In the middle of the piazza is the Four Rivers Fountain which was designed by Bernini. Above the fountain is an Egyptian obelisk which was first brought to Rome when Egypt was a province of the Roman Empire. This square was first built as a racetrack during the reign of Emperor Domitian. I like seeing the piazza without any people which would not be possible during daylight hours.

This is another image from my recent trip to the Olympic Peninsula. I hiked down to Second Beach to photograph the sunset. I was a bit disappointed to find no clouds in the sky, but I was able to line up the setting sun in a notch of the sea stack for a great starburst effect. It was also nice to have the beach to myself that evening.

Recently when we had some unusually clear weather I went down to Seattle Center to take some photos. The winter light was not so good for EMP so I went over to the Pacific Science Center. I had never been inside before and I was really impressed by this view in the courtyard and the reflecting pool. I think the white structures look great against a blue sky.

The colors in Mexico are amazing. This is a view of Guanajuato from a rooftop terrace. I think climate affects our color sensibility and people in warm climates tend to prefer bright, bold colors. I love the colorful hillside houses that hug the walls of this canyon with colonial architecture in the foreground of this image. Such a beautiful place!

Whenever I visit a new city, I try to find a good location to shoot the city from a distant spot. Having some water in the foreground is always makes a nice composition. This is the San Diego skyline as seen from Coronado Island. It was such a beautiful view across the harbor!

I am a big fan of Tuscany, especially its rolling landscapes and iconic cypress trees. Tuscany is famous for its wines so I decided to shoot some vineyards on a trip there. This is a vineyard I found while I was wondering around the area just outside Montalcino. I like the lines in this composition. The vineyard posts in the foreground are echoed in the cypress trees in the background and the rows of grape vines in the foreground contrast with those on the hillside. It was such a beautiful sight to see!

This is another photo from my recent trip to the Olympic Peninsula. I got up early to shoot the early morning light and was able to capture this beautiful dawn sky. When the sky is clear it is often possible to see at dawn looking west a sky which slowly changes from purple at the horizon to pink and then to blue. Technically this is called the earth's shadow. In this image I like the gradation of colors in the sky and its reflection in wet beach.

When we had some unusually clear weather recently I made a brief trip down to Portland, OR to shoot some cityscapes.   While I have visited Portland before I had not shot the skyline from the opposite side of the Willamette River.  I found a great location near OMSI where I made this image.  Luckily it was a calm day and the reflections of the city lights in the river were fantastic. It was such a beautiful sight to see so many different colors reflected on the water's surface!

When I visited the Olympic peninsula last week, I spent one night at the Kalaloch Lodge which is on the Pacific coast where the Kalaloch creek empties into the ocean.  This shoreline faces directly west and I was treated to a beautiful sunset.  This was the view of Kalaloch creek at sunset. It was such a beautiful sight!

Last week I took advantage of some unseasonably clear weather in the Pacific Northwest to visit the Olympic Peninsula. This is a shot of Second Beach about 20 minutes before sunrise. It was a little difficult to hike out 30 minutes to the beach in the predawn darkness, but I was rewarded with this beautiful sight. I just love this isolated, rugged coast. While it may look like I was standing in the ocean, I actually was standing on some rocks that were sticking out above the water. I like the tranquility and peacefulness of this image and it is why early morning is my favorite time for photography.
